Within the pages of the new book, Jesus In The Jail, ($16.99, paperback, 9781498405065; $8.99, e-book, 9781498405072) SameeYisrael Solanky tells his eyebrow-raising testimony of being sent to prison in the midst of serving God. While in prison, serving a sentence of forty-four months, the author began to experience God like never before. He eventually answered the call to prison ministry—while behind bars.

Currently ministering on the other side of the prison cell, the author wants the world to know that not only is God working in church buildings, but inside prisons too. He believes that the move of God is more evident in some prisons than it is in churches. Through his book, Samee’s desire is to open the eyes of many people, in the Christian realm, and within the justice system. He believes that prisoners will be inspired to see that imprisonment can be an oasis, with God’s help.

“Without reading this book, an average person living in the so-called ‘free world’ would not know the dark and the bright side of what is really happening in prisons,” states the author. “Most people do not have the slightest idea of how powerfully the Spirit of God works, or can work in prisons. What I have accomplished, by God's help, in prisons should be declared by the news media for the inspiration of general public.”

When asked about his credentials in authoring Jesus In The Jail, SameeYisrael Solanky shared, “What is written in this book are my first-hand experiences and true stories. I have written what I have seen in courts and in prisons. I have not written this book as an outside journalist but as an ‘inside inmate.’ By God's help, I’ve turned my imprisonment into a rose garden. As a former prisoner, I can boldly say that other inmates can also do the same, by God's help. What I experienced in prisons, other prisoners can also experience. God is able to turn the curse into a blessing.”
